30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A better route than Anaconda but it can suffer from being dirty. Pitch 1 is an excellent E4 6a. 1) 6a, 20m. A short crack leads to a ledge (possible belay). Continue up the crack to its termination then head right up another thinner crack. Hard moves above gain a pocket and then the ledge - a brilliant pitch. 2) 6b, 10m. Climb straight up as for Anaconda but move right up a crack to easier ground. © Rockfax
